Kevin Smith Injury: Lions RB Questionable According To Week 15 Injury Report

The Detroit Lions will be battling toward a berth in the NFL Playoffs when they play the Oakland Raiders this weekend and, in a surprise move, the majority of the key players will be relatively healthy. The Lions released their final injury report on Friday with Kevin Smith listed as questionable, but numerous reports indicate the running back will start on Sunday.

Smith was limited all week in practice, but that seems to be more of a precautionary measure in hopes that he's able to sustain a couple of hits from the Raiders. The last time Smith played hurt, he was forced to miss a solid portion of the game after re-injuring his ankle.

No players are listed as definitive outs for the Lions, but defensive end Lawrence Jackson and cornerback Aaron Berry are both doubtful to play. Nick Fairley, Louis Delmas, Justin Durant and Eric Smith all join Smith on the questionable list.

Rob Sims, Amari Spievey, Chris Houston and Willie Young are all listed as probable to play against the Raiders.
